Mango Key Lime Daiquiri

I make mango smoothies all year, but a mango daiquiri is pure vacation.   Especially after a long day on the boat, just before my nap in the hammock.  Even if you’re far away from a hammock, this cocktail could take you there.

 For our trip to the Keys this year I brought a bag of frozen mangoes from last year’s crop to use up before mango season.  I also brought some key limes from my cousin’s tree. I think key limes are way more flavorful than Persian limes.  They’re yellow when ripe (as are all limes).  If you know someone with a key lime tree, be very nice to them.

  • 1/2 cup rum
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar (or more to taste)
